“MMA designed our home - and it couldn't function better! Evan and the team were creative, listened to our needs, and made great use of a narrow lake lot. They were involved in every detail of the home, making the selection of the final finishes a breeze, and remained involved during the building process to ensure our dream became a reality.”

42 North - Architecture + Design
Grand Rapids, MI Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 16, 2016
“When we decided to build our home, we were pretty naive to the process. We are blessed to have met Ryan and 42º North to help educate us on the process, and point out specific things we never thought of. Ryan has been the single most important asset in our home-build process – not only designing us a house we absolutely love, but also looking out for our best interests when dealing with other parties, such as builders, vendors, etc. The integrity that the guys at 42º North have is rare, and something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. They are swift to hold your hand through the process, and the design work is top-notch. Ryan’s communication is also amazing, making the process with him stress-free and easy going. 42º North is the only architecture firm we will ever recommend and use should we decide to build again. We’re happy to take a friendship out of this year-long process as well, and that is something that you can never put a price on.” Steve & Ashley E, Ada MI”
Schultz Architecture
Grand Rapids, MI Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 4 out of 5 starsOctober 30, 2012
“What we appreciated about working with Jon Schultz is his ability to really listen to our ideas and dreams, and then architecturally interpret them. We hired Jon to help us design a home that would be comfortable and easy to "age" in, one that would allow us to be environmentally conscious in our building and in the operations of the house, and a home that aesthetically worked on the property we would call home. We are very satisfied with the end result, and have Jon Schultz to thank for our dream becoming a reality.”
Thompson Remodeling
Grand Rapids, MI Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 19, 2013
“Thompson Remodeling provided a team of experts for our complete kitchen overhaul. Our entire experience--from planning stages to finished product--was amazing! We were involved in every stage of the design. Ben and his team discussed planning ideas with us, gave us a 3D image of our new kitchen before construction, helped us select quality materials and quickly put us at ease as construction started. We were given a specific and thorough timeline for project completion. Our home was taken care of throughout this process. We highly recommend Thompson Remodeling for any home renovation!”
Lucid Architecture
Grand Rapids, MI Architectural Design Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsNovember 25, 2013
“When looking to build our lake house in SW Michigan, we knew we wanted a warm, modern home. But homes of this style in this region are a bit rare - and so finding an architect in the area that shared our vision was also a bit tricky. Fortunately, someone recommended Lucid Architecture to us and one look at their website told us they designed beautiful homes that matched our taste. We went into the design process with a pretty clear notion of what we wanted. Not only did Eric and Dana at Lucid help us realize that vision; they propelled the design from sound to spectacular. Our home is everything we wanted, and more.”
Sears Architects

“Sears Architect designed a 3100 sq house for us in East Grand Rapids, MI. We have never built a home previously. We found the design process to be very efficient which resulted in a home that matches our needs and wants. The Sears project manager was very responsive and Rob Sears seemed to be full informed and involved at all times. Having said this there were many heartaches that occurred that could in part be mitigated with up front client education. In talking with another friend who build a house with Sears last year, our experience was similar to theirs. 1. Architectural costs - designing a custom build house is more expensive and has more components than one would expect. Multiple site surveys, structural engineers, each set of more detailed plans add to the final cost. We spent $xxxxx for plans - which were the refinement of a plan presented to us in a design build proposal by the builder. In addition we used an interior designer recommended by the architect another $xxxx. We would have been happier if we had a fixed predefined budget as the builder led us to believe the costs would be about $25,000. Having said this, Rob Sears was very responsive to financial questions and happily and promptly provided the billing records that justified their billings. In addition I felt Rob made a strong effort to follow the project to completion and did quite a bit after delivery of the plans, uncompensated, to finish the job. In the end we are very happy with Sears Architects - but wiser for the experience. 2. Cost of building. We learned that there was essentially no communication between our builder and the architect regarding the building allowances and the costs of the developed plan. Our home ended up xx% over budget, despite most components falling within allowances - the builder just underbid to get the work. What I learned from the process is that is not the architects job, rather the home owners sole responsibility, to verify all components are accuately costed prior to contracting a builder. 3. Interior designer. We did not expect how important the interior designer would be in implementing the design of the home - guiding interior and exterior materials, designing lighting schemes, plumbing, etc as well as planning for furniture layout. Sears recommended Christine DiMaria. We separately retained her. My wife and I thought she did a great job - design, providing perspective from other project, helping sort priorities, communicating with the architect and in general holding our hands through the up and downs of the 10 month process. We were glad we used a designer who had worked with the architect before. 4. Landscape design. This was a separate contract and budget through a landscape architect. Sears coordinated well re the placement of the house on the lot, grade decisions needed so proper retention walls could be planned and built by the Landscape team. So overall, I feel that Sears Architecture is a terrific firm that does good work. We are very happy with the completed product of our home. We would recommend them to other home buyers.”

“Denise Hopkins did an outstanding job with my gutted condo. She took the floor plan and created a space for me that I never imagined I could have!! She researched, designed and presented me with a package of fantastic colors, awesome furntiure, and sustainable elements for a free flowing, exciting area. It has made me come alive in my own space!! Her experience as an architect, designer and passion for sustainability all melted into one happy place. She considered my budget, presented the plan in a positive and personal manner, and listened to my interests. This is the first time I have ever hired a designer for a project and she made me feel that I deserved to have a wonderful space. And now I have one. She's fantastic!!”

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsJuly 14, 2017
“Corri is a professional on every level. I hired her to design a small home using principles of sustainability, functionality and feng shui design. With a small budget and big ideas I needed someone who understood me and could deliver in an organized and manageable way. I was not disappointed at any point in our process. I have not yet built the house but she has created my dream.”
